Looking for homemade pasta? Looking for great food to accommodate those who love meat, fish, and vegetarian? You won't be disappointed. A neighborhood restaurant that is a gem. Great wine selections too.

I’ve been to Riviera several times. But the last two visits have been disappointing. Really slow service once and the other time the waiter thought he was doing us a favor by bringing the food. The food was just ok at best. I’ll probably try...More
